Safely reopening Marin County from COVID-19

Outdoor Recreation

Current Status

Marin’s status on the Blueprint for a Safer Economy means the following Outdoor Recreation-related businesses can operate, with modifications:

  • Boat Launches
  • Campgrounds
  • Charter Boats
  • Golf Courses
  • Playgrounds
  • Recreational Equipment Rentals
  • Recreational Vehicle (RV) Parks
  • Tennis / Racket Clubs
  • Other Outdoor Recreation Activity Businesses

Campgrounds, RV Parks, Golf Courses or Tennis Clubs with conference spaces or meeting rooms should keep those areas closed until each of those types of establishments is allowed to resume modified or full operation.

All public events or concentrated gatherings at campgrounds or RV parks, including group bonfires, group campsites, presentations at outdoor amphitheaters, musical or other performances, or other events must be cancelled or postponed until allowed to resume.

Reopening Guidelines

Each business much create, adopt and implement a Site Specific Protection Plan (SPP) prior to reopening. The SPP template combines state-level guidance published in the California State Resilience Roadmap and local Marin County public health policies.

Outdoor Recreation-related businesses / operations should follow the guidance below to create a safer environment for workers and patrons.

Incorporate the appropriate industry specific guidelines from the state guidance linked above into the “Business Specific Best Practices” section of your SPP.


  • Outdoor recreation guidance does not apply to youth camps, team or contact sports, school and educational activities, and other public gatherings. For guidance on day camps and youth sports, visit the Childcare and Youth Programs webpage.
